My Brethren,

May is here, spring is in the air, Covid is on the decline, and Installation is imminent!

As I vacate the Chair of King Solomon, I thank you for the opportunity you’ve given me and for the memories gathered along the way.

On May 17 we will install Bro. Frank Sigouin for the upcoming masonic year. Bro. Sigouin, as you all know, has a deep love of the Craft. His enthusiasm will be a benefit to everyone and we should be honoured to have him as our next Master.

Our District Deputy Grand Master, R.W Bro. Glen Simpson, will be joining us in person for Installation. His presence will bring a welcome spark to the proceedings and serve to remind us of the larger body of which we are part.

When you come into the Lodge room this month, you will note that our Warrant has been draped. This is done in memory of our Past Grand Master, MW. Bro. Donald Mumby. MW Mumby was a giant among masons, Custodian of the Work, and the author of many of the rubrics in the Book of the Work. We will cherish his memory in our hearts, and hold him as an example to which we can all aspire.

So, Brethren. We have much for which to be grateful, and much to anticipate. Please keep those who cannot join us in Lodge in your thoughts, encourage those who can travel to come out, and keep safe, always.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Donald Learning
Worshipful Master
